DS2 was playing soccer with DS1 out the front while I made dinner, DF was out there too. He fell over and has a graze and a big lump on the back of his head (as well as the 2 lumps he got last week) and he has chipped his front tooth.
Is there anything a dentist can do for him? He's only just turned 2 and I'm so upset for him.
Also I've given him nurofen and he had an iceblock and pasta for dinner. Is there anything else I can do to help him until I take him to see someone tomorrow?

:-( poor little thing. My DS chipped his tooth at the playground (don't get me started on those animal things on giant springs) and I was advised by the dentist that there's not much they can really do but just to keep an eye on it in case it shifted around a lot. Big hugs - I was so upset. Like the first scratch on a new car.
And obviously, watch for any change in behaviour in case he's done his head some damage x

I don't think they can do much.
I hate head lumps they totally freak me out. I hope he isn't hurt to bad. Hugs.

Thanks. I've never seen him so upset before. Is it okay to put him to bed now? It happened an hour ago and other than saying it hurt his behaviour has been normal. That is if he can find a comfortable position to sleep.

How is he going now?
Honestly I'm a bit OTT and paranoid with head injuries, but if it were me I wouldn't give any more nurofen overnight because pain can provide a clue that something is wrong, and I would be stressed about something getting worse overnight.
Then again I stayed up practically all night the other night in case DS suddenly reacted to a redback spider bite that there was no evidence he had, so you may choose to disregard me totally :-)

I wouldn't put him to bed yet. I would wait another hour unless he naturally fall asleep. I would also keep a super close on him until 4 hours after.

My DS is 2.5yo and knocked his ENTIRE front tooth out 3 nights ago. I'm still getting used to the big gap
the dentist said their was nothing to be done and we'll have to live with it until his adult teeth come in.

He wanted me to lie down with him when we put DS1 to bed so he pulled out the fold out lounge for us both next to his bed and we lay in that for about an hour with me cuddling him. He told me I could go and fell asleep half an hour after that.
I'm going to call a dentist tomorrow to talk to them. I think they'll have to do something even if it is just filing it down because it is sharp. I don't want it to hurt him more if he falls again. He's forever running and jumping so falls a lot, usually he doesn't hurt himself quite so much
SpicyTurtle, I wonder if the whole tooth gone would look better than half a tooth. It's going to take me a long time to get used to as well. I just hope it doesn't affect his self esteem when he is old enough to notice.
